  1. I agree that Rose won but 49-46??? Wtf kind of drugs were the judges on? rofl That fight was A LOT closer than that. It seems like judges don't really pay attention to kicks at all even though they can have a more devastating effect than punches. I am so tired of these shitty judges in MMA and boxing.

  2. Honestly, I had Rose winning 3 rounds. Was expecting a split decision, possibly a tie.

  3. I was thinking 3-2 Rose, but rounds 3-4 were both toss ups, could easily be 4-1 Rose as well. Rose proves to be the better striker. Rose has the better slips, the harder strikes, and was landing repeatedly. JJ came back with some good leg kicks, but Rose came out and took that 5th round beautifully.

  4. I can see an argument, not a very strong one but an argument all the same for Rose winning 4 rounds but the fact that all 3 judges went with that weak argument is pretty sad…

  5. I didnt think the fight was that close at all the third round i gave to Joanna and thats it. Go back and watch the fight guys. Almost all the head strikes landed were to joannas face. She got hit clean multiple times clean to the face and her kicks were fairly ineffective. 49-46 was correct imo
